One of my pet peeves has been that Critical Thinking is not a requirement at the high school level. If high school is supposed to prepare kids to make important life decisions, it would seem to be one of the most important disciplines. I rarely hear any discussion about the issue, however. Do you think an introduction to critical thinking (or for that matter, an introduction to philosophy) should be required at the high school level or before? Why isn't it?
